World Trade Center Poster
Paramount Pictures' World Trade Center has had an interesting transition over the last month when it comes to early reports and hype. In most cases, a film will usually receive its most positive reviews early on with the negative reviews appearing only a week before the same film hits theatres. That is not the case of WTC, which had its first, extremely early, review claiming that the film was downright bad.
Ever since that review we have only heard good reports including the latest below.
World Trade Center Reviewed
The good people over at AICN have recently posted their review for World Trade Center and claim that the film, though under falling debris, is solid. You may want to bring a box of tissues with you to this one.
WORLD TRADE CENTER is about one of the downright scariest, most terrifying moments in U.S. History. It’s about men that wanted to help, but before they could help one single person, they found themselves beneath tons of rubble, in excruciating agony and torment… with little to no hope of survival. It is also about the utter helplessness of their wives waiting for word, unable to go to the scene, to aid in the search.
I should warn you, this is an intensely emotional film. There are very few moments of levity. At its heart – it’s a story of wading through despair and putting your faith in people you can’t see or know are coming. About staying awake through pain, of facing and resolving that you’re going to die, to find yourself alive… again. Of how Viggo Mortensen quotes from G.I. JANE are the most useful phrases in the world, when buried beneath tons of rubble.
It’s amazing. Just amazing. Easily one of the most joyous moments I’ve had in a film came when that Marine said what he said, and the look on Michael Pena’s Jimeno’s face. It’s just euphoric beyond anything you could imagine.
